The newly synthesized 1-(2-hydroxy phenyl)-3-(4-nitrophenyl) propane-1, 3-dione with their transition metal (II) complexes 5(a-e) under ultrasound irradiation methods at low temperature were characterized by elemental analysis, FTIR, 1H-NMR spectrum, Mass, and Electronic spectroscopy. The ratio of the metal (II) complexes was found to be 1:2 (metal: ligand). The analytical data suggested that octahedral geometry for the all complexes. The synthesized ligand and their metal complexes 5(a-e) were screened for antimicrobial activity against S. aureus, B. Subtilis and A. Niger and F. Oxysporum using streptomycin as a references drugs.
